A week ago last Sunday, I went fishing. Something "felt" wrong all the way there and back ... but I just didn't figure ... kind of slipped my mind when I got home.
That evening, as I unhooked the trailer and moved it ... something again "felt" wrong. And again ... it just didn't register what it was.
During the night, I came full awake as my wheel fell off the trailer on the way to fishing. Fortunately, it was a dream ... but I knew what I had to do Monday. Sure enough, one of the bearings was already coming apart.
I missed your adventure, NoBass, by a day or two.

I hope all this has no bearing upon future results.

Nothing like coming home after a long day of fishing barely awake and feel that shimmy in the seat of your truck. Look in side mirror and someones wheel is rolling down the side median. Then you realize it is yours..
